Fiji is expecting to sign an Air Service Agreement with India.
Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum revealed over the weekend that a team from India will be in Fiji in January 2016 to carry out talks over the ASA.
“Hopefully they’ll be down here in the middle of January. We need to finalize that because India is now the second largest outbound market in the world and in the next five to ten years will be the largest outbound market. So, Fiji having a direct flight to Singapore means we need to level of connectivity with India vis-à-vis Singapore.”
In a trip to India earlier this year, the AG had stated there is also a possibility of code-sharing by Indian Airlines with Fiji Airways.
